I got this error when trying to compile my map:[code:1]hlbsp: Error: Exceeded MAX_LEAF_FACES
Description: This error is almost always caused by an invalid brush, by having huge rooms, or scaling a texture down to extremely small values (between -1 and 1)
Howto Fix: Find the invalid brush. Any imported prefabs, carved brushes, or vertex manipulated brushes should be suspect[/code:1]

I dont have any extremely huge room nor did i resize a shape really really small......
I fixed all the problems which existed(Alt+p) but i still get the same error.
Is there a particular way of finding out which shape/brush is corrupt?
Thanks!

Hmm that log did nothing for me :-\.

Did you use the "fit" option on any of the brushes? This could of made a texture too small.

Copied from tommy of escondido's:

Quote:
Max_leaf_faces

You have gone over a limit similar to max patches error, but by BSP creating too many leaf faces for VIS to handle - probably due to "shattering" of a brush. Did you carve a complex brush (like a cylinder) or intersect it with another brush?

superjer, just like i said; Ur tha MAN!!!!!

I copyd and cut up one of the balkonys from cs_militia. It had alot of brushes laying one over another. As soon as i deleted it, it all went good. Well, now it gives me another error: [code:1]Error: Bad surface extents[/code:1]

Hmm first try removing this texture from your map.

[code:1]texture -0cstrike_fj2dk[/code:1]

Then recompile and see if it is still giving you the same problem.

yea i noticed that last night but since them brushes r used quite alot in my map i thaught maybe ill wait and c if theres some other way out.
Neways, i tried to remove it and retexture it but once i did, id get a new error. Its saying the same thing just for another brush. And this brush is/are my walls..............:( which is the main part of the map.......lol!!! (althaugh it aint funny)

What can i do?

I really dont want to start building the map all over again. Theres quite a bit to it already and since im a new mapper i cant get around Worldcraft as fast as i would want to.

So is there any other alternative to this problem?.......

Tha MAN?

Bad surface extents

Use check for problems and look for any texture axis perpendicular to face and fix.

OR if you have any really HUGELY scaled textures, that could do it too.

I tried to make another map(remake of the other one).

I've got 4 walls with a floor and a ceiling. Theres nothing else on the map and im still getting the same error......
None of my brushes over-lap nor do i have anything 'spectacular' carved out. Like i said "4 walls" thats all i have.
